I'm hoping someone can post "Voodoo Woman" (1957), I would love to watch it. I'm a big fan of "Curse of the Swamp Creature" and all of Larry Buchanan's films and am now trying to see the originals of his remakes for A.I.

I don't think you'll find it here any time soon because "Voodoo Woman" along with the other 50's AIP monster flicks such as "Invasion of the Saucermen", "The She Creature", or "Teenage Frankenstein" are copyright, I believe. It's too bad that these films aren't being released on dvd because I think there is an audience for them and if they were available, I'd buy 'em in a heartbeat.

I just went to Amazon.com and found a copy of "Voodoo Woman". It's on a double-bill with "Revenge of the Zombies" and sells for $35, used. No, thank you.

I just looked, and it's a PAL (non-USA) disc. I see that the film was released by itself as well, again only in the non-USA PAL format.

I still have the old commercial VHS tapes of Invasion of the Saucermen, It Conquered the World, Amazing Colossal Man, and Brain Eaters, since I figure I'll never ever see them on DVD. The only reason I saved my VHS player.

I would advise you to get a dvd recorder and transfer these films to dvd. That way you could play the heck out your movies without adding wear and tear on your vcr or your vhs tapes. That's what I've been doing and that's also where 95% of the stuff I've been uploading has been coming from. It's worked out well for me.

If there was some way we could exchange physical addresses without making them public knowledge, I'd be happy to make them into dvds for you.

Did you know that She-Creature came out commercially a few years ago on a Lions Gate double-feature DVD with Corman's Day The World Ended? Copyright, but still available at Amazon and other stores.

Are you referring to the 50's classics or the newer films that share the same titles but actually have nothing to do with the originals (not that I have a problem with them)?

The 50s classic, believe me. It was released on DVD as a double-feature DVD with Corman's original Day the World Ended by Lions Gate. It was even selling in Walmart last Halloween. You can get it on Amazon very easily, as it's still in print.

The also released a double feature DVD of Earth Vs. the Spider and War of the Colossal Beast, both great fun Bert I. Gordon films.

Yep. Many of those '50s AIP films are copyright and tightly-held, including among others I Was a Teenage Werewolf, I Was a Teenage Frankenstein, It Conquered the World, Invasion of the Saucermen, Amazing Colossal Man, Terror from the Year 5000, and several others. Kiss 'em goodbye, because they're not likely to ever see the light of day (or our DVD players).

When Sam Arkoff sold AIP to Filmways/Orion he retained the rights to a number of the films: Blood of Dracula, Brain Eaters, War of the Colossal Beast, Day the World Ended, The Spider, Reform School Girl, She Creature, The Undeadm Voodoo Woman, How To Make and Monster and more. He didn't really keep the rights to exploit the films as such. He kept all rights for the purposes of remakes. He had authorised remakes for TV in the 60s (the Larry B series), and some of the movies were remade again for DVD in the early 2000s.

So keeping the rights was not about preservation or release of the original B/W films. Some of the originals have been poorly maintained if the British and Australian DVDs are anything to go by.
